Il Tiramisu Ristorante & Bar - Permanently Closed Ratings and Reviews
Very prompt service from an excellent waiter. Very nice staff
Very reasonable corkage
Good Caesar salad
Tagliatelle bolognese - excellent pasta. Bolognese good But not outstanding. Would try the lamb ragu next
Fish was good. Nice size portion
Soup was very flavorful
Tiramisu was very good
Bread to start fair at best
It had been quite a while since we had dined at Il Tiramisu, but we remembered that their food was good, etc. so we decided to return. The food was excellent and the wait staff couldn't have been more accommodating. This will definitely be one of our "go to" places.
Starts with a greeting from Peter, the owner, a gentleman, always interest, never imposing. Start with the Portobello mushroom, or Mac and Cheese (the "mac" is really tender aldente orecchiette smothered in a mix of mild cheeses, served in a goblet and topped with shrimps.
All pasta entrees are superb and osso buco-none better.
My girlfriend and I decided to go here for Valentine's Day because she really enjoys the ravioli. To our surprise, they offered a fixed menu and a set price per person. We are both teenagers and the price/fixed menu really threw me off, if they had notified the guests ahead of time I wouldn't be as dissapponted. Also I ordered a Caesar salad, and I was given 4 romaine hearts, 2 of which had no dressing at all, and the croutons were disgustingly mushy. My pasta crepes where so mushy that they fell apart as soon as I touched them with my fork. Being an Italian restaurant, they should know that pasta is meant to be served al dente, not as mush. The only redeeming factor was the desert.
Great service in the classic old world style with knowledgeable waiters. Thank you. Incredible ossobuco that I can't find in many other places, so tender. Pasta with lobster was incredible. Cool music as well. They had a large party in the other room, but we were well taken care of. Seems like a lot of regulars. And great wine promo, half off the bottle prices. Wow!!!
I dined here initially, for a high school graduation reception where we had a pre-set menu. I remembered the food being good, so when we were looking for a place to celebrate my parents' 44th wedding anniversary, I thought it would be a good place, since it was close, and reasonably priced. I made a reservation via Open Table, and although we had to wait a few minutes, I didn't have a problem with that, as we had a party of 9. I was sadly disappointed with the food. I had one of the lobster past specials and it had no flavor. My husband said the same thing of his linquine with clams. It wasn't horrible, but unfortunately we had to endure a loud patron at the table behind us, for most of the night. We heard her ENTIRE conversation and it just added to the fact that the food was a bit bland and the service was just "okay". Although our waiter was VERY nice, the service wasn't out of the ordinary. We ordered a couple of desserts and the only dessert I liked was the Hazelnut Gelato. Most likely won't come again.
My husband and I spent our 3rd New Year's Eve @ Il Tiramisu for a reasonably priced New Year's Eve dinner. The restaurant is small and cozy with good Italian dishes. My husband dined on barramundi and I had the ossobuco. The restaurant had a prixe fixe menu for the night which consisted of three courses. The portions were ample and delicious. Looking forward to another
New Year's Eve dinner next year.
...To die for! This place threatened to close after 17 years of great dining. Persuaded by customer loyalty, they are staying open. Family owned, this classy gem is a friendly, happy night spot serving the best Italian food in the valley. The menu is rich with Italian favorites including ricotta & basil crepes. For the moment all wine is half price per bottle. You can't do better!
I love this restaurant, the salads, pasta dishes and desserts were delicious. loved the Lobster tagliatelle special that night. the Linguini Portofino al Cartoccio is not only delicious but presented in a foil bag and opened beautifully onto your plate in front of your eyes.
I've held off writing this review to select the words I choose more dispassionately. We were a party of three, just before Christmas on a Saturday night. Our guest was known to the owner and his son and was greeted warmly on arrival though she made to stand for about 10 minutes while my husband parked the car (in their lot to which they had not given the correct directions). Did I mention our guest is 93? We were seated and from then on, except for the visit by the owner (the father), we had to hail a waiter as they rushed by, carefully not looking at our table. Eventually even our guest noticed this and her prime reason for eating out is to have a leisurely meal. It was a struggle to get cocktails (extremely limited selection; neither of our choices was available in premium whiskey or vodka). A struggle to get the hors d'oeuvres, which were EXCELLENT when they finally arrived. A struggle to order the mains. Two of our party chose the pasta special of the evening, which came lukewarm and pasty. Efforts to get more sauce required asking two different waiters. Forget getting a second drink. The noise from the tiny bar was so loud we could not speak comfortably to each other. That is normal, I'm sure, so it's a comment, not a complaint. The food, though slowly served and barely warm, was exemplary. Nevertheless at $175 for three, we won't be back given the total lack of service. Sorry this is so long. YMMV.
I ate here once before - about 15 years ago, and remembered it as a quaint, romantic, cozy Italian restaurant with good food. This time around, not so much. My family (of four) was seated in a darkly lit, sparsely decorated (if at all) room. I know the restaurant isn't big, but the room we were in was just depressing. No ambience, at all. The service, however, was impeccable, and the wait staff polite and very accommodating. The owner came by to say hello (very nice man). The food was just ok, and oddly, sparsely laid out on the plate. Had they just placed the food closer together or on a smaller plate, it would have looked more palatable and inviting. As it was, it was overall rather disappointing. We most likely won't eat here again.
